Hello!

I'm not sure if this is the forum for this topic but here I go. I installed SL 6.0 on VirtualBox 4.1.20 and the max resolution is 800x600. I want a 1024x768 resolution. What can I do?

I hope you can help me.

Did you install the extension pack ? Also there is a newer version.

install and compile the additions (not extensions) inside of sl in vbox and it will give you shared folders, 3d support and higher resolutions.

Please read this:- http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/virtualbox-4.html

As far as I can see the guest additions are now auto compiled, but you need the extension pack for USB support, shared folders and other goodies.

I have the extension pack installed and have no problems resizing the display, using USB devices etc.
